Governor's Beach, Turks and Caicos

Step onto the powdery white sands of Governor's Beach and snorkel in the bay, observing the colorful marine life. Take a stroll along the beach and admire the huge, rusting shipwreck, which forms a barrier on the beach. There’s shade to be found beneath the trees that line the sand, but make sure you bring your own snacks and water, as you won't find any food vendors on the beach. If you want to enjoy a more secluded part of the beach, walk beyond the shipwreck; the beach is quieter here, even when the cruise ships pull in.
